The Religious Affiliation of
famous former abortion doctor who became a staunch pro-life advocate
Norma McCorvey is famous for being the woman known a "Roe" in the famous "Roe Versus Wade" U.S. Supreme Court which forced the legalization of abortion on all U.S. states.
Norma McCorvey later became a staunch opponent of abortion and has campaigned to overturn the case which she now realizes led to a holocaust: the murder of millions of unborn children.
Norma McCorvey is a Catholic and identifies herself as a "born again" Christian.
The official website of the Hillcrest Church - the church where Norma McCorvey's "alter call" (see below) took place - identifies it as an "inter-denominational church."
From: Ervin Shaw, "Christian Testimony of Norma McCorvey: Abortionists' Foil" webpage, posted posted 2001; latest addition/update 22 June 2003, in "Christian Testimonies" section of "The Truth . . . What Is It?" website (http://poptop.hypermart.net/testbn.html; viewed 7 November 2005):
Norma McCorvey wanted an abortion and wanted it "legal". Though she never had it (gave baby for adoption), in the process, she told her attorneys that she was pregnant because she had been raped. She gave the baby up for adoption. In 1972-73, in the case known as Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court of the USA concluded that abortion should be legalized; and this tragically erroneous interpretation lead to 41,000,000 legal abortions (sheddings of innocent blood) in the USA from 1973-2002.
After a confrontational friendship with Operation Rescue leader "Flip" Benham and a loving relationship with little Emily Mackey, Jesus entered the picture of McCorvey's life through the alter call of pastor Morris Sheets of Hillcrest Church, Dallas in 1995. Norma later confessed the rape lie and renounced the evil of abortion. Her story is in book form: Won By Love. And she is now a leading spokesperson against abortion through her Dallas, Texas ministry organization, Roe No More Ministries. Read her testimony at this web site.
Update: In June 2003, Norma and her attorney, Allen Parker...after working on the suit for about 3 years...filed a motion to the U. S. Supreme Court that it reverse the decision because we know so much more now: 3-D sonograms show an actual little baby for all the world to see; molecular biology, fertility programs and frozen embryos, and cloning data all convincingly confirm that a new life begins at conception; 44 states now have "baby Moses" laws which protect a mother who abandons a child to the state; and crisis pregnancy centers now outnumber abortion centers 3-4:1.
